Governor Charlie Crist today announced a scaled-back version of the state’s plans to buy U.S. Sugar land for Everglades restoration. The original plans called for the state to pay $1.75 billion to purchase 187,000 acres, which would be used to restore water flow to the Everglades. Now the state plans to spend $533 million on 72,500 acres. The purchase will still be the biggest land buy in the state’s history, Crist said.
